Short CV:

After the successful completion of the Secondary Horticultural School in 1995, I started with study on Faculty of Agriculture, areas Agriculture and Horticulture. I finished my studies in 2000 with a thesis title Effects of the number of bines on the hop yield (Humulus lupulus L.). The thesis was supervised by professor Franc Bavec, Ph.D. and co-supervised by Dušica Majer, Ph.D. At the same year I started working as a trainee at the Institute for Hop Research and Brewing Žalec, later renamed to Slovenian Institute of Hop Research and Brewing, at the Department of Plant Protection. After completion of the traineeship, I continued to work at the same department up to 2004. I worked on conducting and assessment of efficacy trials for plant protection products. From 2005 onwards I am working on the Department of Official Validation and Evaluation as evaluator of plant protection products (PPPs). In October 2001, I started with post graduate studies at the University of Nova Gorica, School of Environmental Sciences. I successfully completed study in 2007 with master thesis Determination of spray deposit on different collectors under the supervision of professor Milica Kač, Ph.D.

I received knowledge for evaluator plant protection products through twinning projects, which were held in 2003 and 2006 under the organization of the Phytosanitary Administration of the Republic of Slovenia (PARS), after renamed to Administration for Food Safety, Veterinary and Plant Protection (UVHVVR) and Pesticides Safety Directorate (PSD), after renamed to Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) York, United Kingdom. I am upgrading this knowledge annually on the Efficacy evaluator meetings on European level.
